A Course in Miracles: Lesson 223


“You are not the Word as much as you are an aspect of the Word and the energy of the Word moves through you. So, you are an amplifier and you are a transistor and a receiver of the Creator. “ – Paul Selig, I Am The Word


There will come a time when we understand the childishness of the belief that separation could be real. Even now, scientists are confirming the existence of the neutrino, a particle of almost zero mass that flies through the universe, passing directly through stars, planets, and people. If an unseen, almost weightless neutrino can pass through me, then why not the “energy of the Word?” And if a neutrino can move through me, then am I really separate from it? At what point do the neutrino and I become one?


I cannot live in separation. It is a logical impossibility. But my identity cannot be forced upon me. I must claim it, and when I do, things change quickly because the place from which I perceive my world changes. This is today’s idea: “God is my life. I have no life but His.”


I am not a separate identity that moves in isolation through a universe of other separate identities. Yes, I am unique, I am my own, but I am always, at the same time, part of greater whole. I cannot think or move apart from the Whole which contains me. Oneness is life and nothing can stand in isolation from it.


Today, remember on the hour that you are part of a greater Whole. Turn your mind to the great Mind that is yours when you decide to claim it. It waits for your acknowledgement. Every loving thought I have is a claim on my identity. Every thought of forgiveness, and every thought of peace joins me with this Mind.

God is my life. I have no life but God’s.” Attunement to these words amplifies my reception of the energy of the Creator. It is an out-call that cannot NOT be received and responded to. The more often I practice attunement (at-one-ment), the better my reception becomes. It feels good and it radiates outward, making those around you feel good.


As you sit in contemplation today, let your goal be the awareness of peace. Let your goal be the feeling of peace. Allow the energy of the Word to move through you in silence as you feel your way into the awareness of what you truly are.


Many blessings, dear reader. And if you’re interested, here is a link to more information on neutrinos.
